How to change the name of Happyhour? was created by Apocmud.org
Hi,

I am a beginner coder for Circle Muds. We have a MUD that is already up and running but we want to be able to start implementing and integrating some more stuff to the MUD just to get some new ideas, zones, etc going.

One thing I want to do is add the happyhour feature however, I want to change the syntax from happyhour to bonus. So if someone types bonus, it does the same thing if someone typed happyhour. How would I go about changing that in the code?

the quickest way to do this would be to edit the message shown on the who screen to show the word bonus instead of happy hour when one is going on... in act.informative.c change

if (IS_HAPPYHOUR > 0){
send_to_char(ch, "It's a Happy Hour! Type \tRhappyhour\tW to see the current bonuses.\r\n");
to
if (IS_HAPPYHOUR > 0){
send_to_char(ch, "It's a BONUS!! Type \tRbonus\tW to see the current bonuses.\r\n");


you could also edit interpreter.c and change
{ "happyhour", "ha" , POS_DEAD , do_happyhour, 0, 0 },
to
{ "bonus", "bo" , POS_DEAD , do_happyhour, 0, 0 },

and in act.other.c find do_happyhour and change all the send_to_char 's to say bonus instead of happyhour.


this is the easiest way to do this i think. it changes the look of everything without making all the changes to rename everything bonus from happy.

Thanks for your response. For some reason I am having trouble integrating this into my circle mud files. I have everything in the right place but when typing 'happyhour' in the cmd prompt, nothing happens it gives me no dialogue at all just says, huh!?!.

The only difference between tbamud's files and mine is that I do not have an act.h - so I placed most of the code in the act.informative.c. I also do not have a DG_VARIABLES and instead use DG_SCRIPTS but it's essentially the same file.

What am I missing here?

the reason the happyhour command isnt working is that we changed the command to bonus.
here:
you could also edit interpreter.c and change
{ "happyhour", "ha" , POS_DEAD , do_happyhour, 0, 0 },
to
{ "bonus", "bo" , POS_DEAD , do_happyhour, 0, 0 },


if you want the happyhour command to work as well as the bonus command then you would need to add
{ "happyhour", "ha" , POS_DEAD , do_happyhour, 0, 0 },
in interpreter.c

It's currently set to happyhour as of right now to keep it simple for the integration

I do have { "happyhour", "ha" , POS_DEAD , do_happyhour, 0, 0 }, in my interpreter.c

The only thing is I do not have an act.h file where the ACMD(do_happyhour); resides so I am not sure where the best alternative place is for me to put that.

Hi thanks for the reply. I was able to get this mostly working now by just re-arranging and working out the bugs.
